Central Business District is also known as the Downtown Core which is the historical and downtown centre of the city-state of Singapore and the main commercial area in Singapore with many integrated resorts such as the Marina Bay Sands, one of the most expensive buildings in the world, with the most expensive standalone casino at bayfront avenue.
In Raffles Place, Tanjong Pagar and Marina Bay CBD, there are many skyscrapers with a height of 280 metres. It is one of the 11 planning areas in the most urbanised central area which forms the dense urban core of the latter. Rochor bounds it in the north, Kallang in the northeast, Marina East and Marina South in the east, Straits View in the south-east, Bukit Merah in the south, and Outram, Museum and Singapore River in the west.
The modern history of Singapore began in this area when Stamford Raffles and representatives of the British East India Company landed on the banks of the Singapore River to establish a free port in Southeast Asia. As the old port grew along the river bank's mouth, the town naturally expanded around it.
The name " Downtown Core" is still relatively unknown, and the term Central Business District (CBD) is often used in conversations.

The city can sometimes feel like a concrete jungle, albeit a clean and comfortable one, but the botanic gardens preserve pieces of Singapore's wilder heritage. Indeed, a walking trail leads to the gardens' heritage trees, which are conserved as part of an effort to protect the city's mature tree species.
